My brother and I did our DiveMaster courses here, and the experience was amazing. Great, professional and friendly staff that will help you with anything. They are caring but responsible at the same time and are always willing to help and educate. I spent two weeks from 8 in the morning to 5 in the afternoon at the facility, and... More

Upgraded my certification with Reef Marina and did several dives with them including a Cozumel trip. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Prices very reasonable for boat dives and equipment rentals. They have snacks and water on the boat for you in-between dives. I have dove quite a bit and the guides were some of the best at finding... More

This is the second time I've used the services on the property at the Reef Playacar. I enjoyed 3 two-tank dives in the week we were there and enjoyed them all immensely. The staff, more than helpful, the dives (all drift) interesting and exciting. I will definitely use their service when back in the area again.

We had never been diving in a Cenote so I was a bit apprehensive but thanks to an excellent divemaster we had an excellent tour.

The dive shop was one of the best shops I have dealt with. My son, who is 10 years old, got certified with Discover Scuba and the staff was amazing. They made sure we were both comfortable with him diving before we left on our first dive. Jon Ander Marin and Lara are two of the caring and all around... More

We had a large group from our 43 that went on a catamaran ride to snorkel the reef. It was a party on the boat for sure. The wind was too great and we did not get to Spinnaker, but it was fun even without.
